The actress will make her West End debut in the world premiere of Dark Sublime at the Trafalgar Studios next year.
Written by Michael Dennis, it has been announced that Dark Sublime will play at the Trafalgar Studios from the 25th June.
Oli arrives at the door of a now-forgotten sci-fi icon – impatient to make friends, and to make something of his life. Marianne, a jobbing actress, knows about waiting – for the phone to ring, for her best friend to see her differently, for her turn at something more substantial than a half-remembered role on a cult TV show. He wants an autograph; she doesn’t want anything from him. Yet as they start to explore each other’s worlds, they begin to discover what every good relationship needs: time and space.
Directed by Andrew Keates, the production is set to star Marina Sirtis who is best known for starring in Star Trek: The Next Generation who will be making her West End debut in play. Further casting has yet to be confirmed.
Talking about his debut play, Michael Dennis said: “This is a big story full of laughter, tears, and silver lamé spacesuits. I’m looking forward to audiences experiencing the birth of a whole galaxy of real emotion and radiophonic sound effects in Trafalgar Studios this summer.”
Meanwhile, director Andrew Keates commented: “I’m delighted to be returning to Trafalgar Studios again after having such happy experiences directing both Dessa Rose and As Is there. But what is a personal treat is to spend time working on a project that fuses two of my very favourite things – Science Fiction and theatre.”
The production is produced by Jamie Chapman Dixon and Piers Cottee-Jones for Rigmarole Productions in association with Arion Productions.
Dark Sublime will play at the Trafalgar Studios from the 25th June until the 3rd August. To book tickets visit ATG Tickets.
